I would like to follow up something in Jen Spry's recent trip report. I
would like to ask birders to talk to locals in country towns about what they
are doing, and why they're doing it in that area. (They seem to have
cottoned on in Chiltern.) In wetland areas, wouldn't it be great for
newcomers to say 'We've come to watch birds', rather than 'We've come to
shoot birds'.


This is a vital message for rural towns, which don't always see the benefits
of birdwatching because we are - dare I say it - quieter, less identifiable
and - maybe - we drink a little less beer.
